Get Ready For Anything: Disaster Preparedness

Free Public Workshop: In a major disaster, you and your neighbors will be each other’s closest source of help. “Help Friends & Neighbors Get Prepared,” shows you how to engage neighbors in getting their households ready, and how to organize to help each other after a disaster. Also, you’ll learn about Neighborhood Emergency Teams and, if being a volunteer first responder appeals to you, how to become a NET member. Also much needed are ham radio operators who can provide vital communication links. This workshop will be repeated three times on the following dates and at the following locations…

  • Wednesday April 30 — 6:30 to 9 pm
    Service Employees International Union, 6401 SE Foster Rd.
  • Tuesday May 13 — 6:30 to 9 pm
    SMILE Station, 8210 SE 13th Ave.
  • Tuesday May 20 — 6:30 to 9 pm
    Reedwood Friends Church, 2901 SE Steele St.
“Get Ready for Anything: Before and After a Disaster” is a free workshop series scheduled for April and May in the Sellwood-Moreland, Woodstock, Foster-Powell/Mt. Scott-Arleta, and Brentwood-Darlington neighborhoods of Portland, Oregon. Falling so near to the March 11 second anniversary of Japan’s earthquake and tsunami, the series reminds us that the offshore Cascadia Subduction Zone threatens Oregon with a similarly disastrous event. The need to get ready is clear.

Thank you for sharing this important information. Whether or not someone lives or work in a known earthquake zone—not to mention when you travel—the unthinkable can strike out of the blue. In a major quake, the choices you make in an instant can change your reality forever. Make sure you and your family know your best options so you'll be ready when the next earthquake strikes.
